Worthington Industries is a global corporation with its headquarters in Columbus, Ohio and subsidiaries throughout the world. With its vast amounts of money and resources, Worthington Industries has become one of the largest companies in America and continues to grow.
History: The history of this company starts back over 150 years ago when an English immigrant named James Worthington settled down on a large plot of land in Ohio and began growing wheat. After harvesting enough crops to sell at market he realized he had made more money than most other farmers around him. He continued doing this for several years until finally he bought up all available plots in his area and became a self-sustaining community eventually becoming a county entirely owned by his family's corporation called the "Worthington Group".
After some time, Worthington realized that he could do more with his excess money and supplies than just grow food for the earth. He began to buy out other companies in Ohio and slowly expanded throughout America. Through this process, he acquired many new corporations such as "Polaris Defense" which was started by several former members of the US Military who felt they had a duty to help protect others from what they had seen during their service. Worthington believed so strongly in Polaris's mission that he bought them out within a few months of their start-up date.
Now, over 150 years since it started, Worthington Industries has become one of the largest corporations in America employing hundreds if not thousands of people throughout the world. With its vast amounts of money, Worthington continues to grow everyday with several current projects being worked on by their scientists and engineers.
